Ordering sushi? There’s an app for that

Hello Sushi launched a new app last week that lets patrons order, photograph their food, check in for coupons and more.

Hello Sushi, which has locations at LSU and on Highland Road near I-10, launched an app that allows diners to order, photograph their food, share on social networks, check in for coupons and more.

One main feature of the app is that diners can, after ordering, ask their server for a code to scan, checking off each roll they ate. Once someone eats all 34 rolls, they’ll get a gift card and a T-shirt.

The app is available for iPhone and Android devices.
